Addicted to Stamps and More: Birthdays

Addicted to Stamps and More has a new BIRTHDAY challenge! It's probably good for me to take a break from thinking about making Christmas cards. ;) 

I love this giant rose and how easily it looks arty with the fill-in stamps. (Also, as I happen to be occasionally layered-stamps challenged, this set lets you get away with imprecision. :D) I stamped the outline in black before adding two peachy shades to the flower and two green shades to the leaves. I added a few artsy splatters - with another stamp! I coloured my sentiment strip with the lighter of the two greens before embossing the simple sentiment in white. (Easier to read in person than in photographs.) I'm adding this to the current The Flower Challenge: Add Leaves. 

Just because the holiday season is creeping up on us doesn't mean people don't have birthdays ;) - so why not make a birthday card and join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white cardstock, Concord & 9th Painted Rose & MFT Birthday Bears stamps, Versamark, MFT extreme black ink & Catherine Pooler bellini, polished, melon ice & garden party inks, Wow white embossing powder

What a beautiful rose, Lindsey. Love the imprecise filling with the colours, makes this rose so artsy and the addition of splatters is the perfect final touch ! Have a great day. x
